Nebraska State Patrol Encourages Tech Vigilance on Safer Internet Day

LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) – Tuesday is Safer Internet Day 2023. The Nebraska State Patrol’s Tech Crimes Unit encourages parents, teachers, and children to use this opportunity to learn about ways to stay safe during their online activities.

“We can all work together to make the Internet safer,” said Lt. Monty Lovelace, commander of NSP Tech Crimes. “One of the main efforts is to ensure that parents, children, teachers and others know that resources exist to help keep them safe in their online activities.”

The NSP encourages all Internet users to be safe while online. The effort can be as simple as starting a conversation about how kids use technology.

“Opening this dialogue with your child can be an important factor in keeping them safe online,” said Lieutenant Lovelace. “Parents also need to understand and use the parental controls built into most devices, set clear rules for online activity, and keep the conversation open so you know what your kids are doing online.”

Resources are available on the Safer Internet Day website. Safer Internet Day began in 2004 and has grown into a worldwide initiative.
